Communications

From: Louise Matsakis


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any emails, written communications, documents, contracts, presentations, or other communications between officials from the Los Angeles Police Department and officials from the company "Flock Safety."

We seek Los Angeles Police Department records of any kind, including electronic records, audiotapes, videotapes, and photographs, as well as letters, emails, facsimiles, telephone messages, voice mail messages and transcripts, notes, and minutes of any meetings. The search should be limited to responsive records created between January 1, 2018 and the day the request is fulfilled.

Here are the specific officials' email accounts I am requesting to be searched:

Michael R. Moore - Chief of Police
Bob Green - Deputy Chief
Josh Rubenstein - Public Information Director
Francois Gardere - Police Admin, Special Projects
Fred Booker, Special Assistant, Community Relations Section
Arif Alikhan, Director, Office of Constitutional Policing & Policy
Robert Arcos, Director, Office of Operations
Beverly Lewis, Commander, Traffic Group
Dominic Choi, Deputy Chief
Justin Eisenberg, Deputy Chief
Jordge Rodriguez, Deputy Chief
Regina Scott, Deputy Chief

In the event some portions of the requested records are properly exempt from disclosure, please disclose any reasonably segregable non-exempt portions of the requested records. If it is your position that a document contains non-exempt segments, but that those non-exempt segments are so dispersed throughout the document as to make segregation impossible, please state what portion of the document is non-exempt, and how the material is dispersed throughout the document. If a request is denied in whole, please state specifically that it is not reasonable to segregate portions of the record for release.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Louise Matsakis

From: Los Angeles Police Department

The Department is cognizant of its responsibilities under the Act.  It recognizes the statutory scheme was enacted to maximize citizen access to the workings of government.  The Act does not mandate disclosure of all documents within the government’s possession.  Rather, by specific exemption and reference to other statutes, the Act recognizes that there are boundaries where the public’s right to access must be balanced against such weighty considerations as the right of privacy, a right of constitutional dimension under California Constitution, Article 1, Section 1.  The law also exempts from disclosure records that are privileged or confidential or otherwise exempt under either express provisions of the Act or pursuant to applicable federal or state law, per California Government Code Sections 6254(b); 6254(c); 6254(f); 6254(k); and 6255.

 

The Department has conducted a search for records and we are providing you with responsive records.

 

If you have any questions, please respond to this email.

 

Respectfully,

 

LAPD Discovery Section, CPRA Unit
